Nipdrivers Destroy Whitey/Oh Blessed Freakshow

The Nipdrivers, L.A.'s underrated '80s hardcore clown kings are once again available for public consumption. This CD contains remastered recordings of their Destroy Whitey EP/Oh Blessed Freak Show LP and their cover of Sweet's "Fox on the Run," from the Desperate Teenage Lovedolls soundtrack. That's 28 tunes in all from a band that likely had an influence on NOFX, more in the how to be obnoxious department than musically. Whether it's covering Olivia Newton John's "Have You Ever Been Mellow?," performing a song called "E.Y.O.B."( stands for "eat yourself out baby") or opening a cover of Duran Duran's "Rio" with the riff from "Nervous Breakdown," these guys probably pissed off a lot of folks back in the day, and this piece of punk history deserves a spot in on your CD rack. (Taang!)
